We highly recommend travelling with Safari 2 Gorilla Tours. Our tour guide Aron made our trip to Queen Elizabeth Nationalpark unforgettable. He was always pleasant, attentive and reliable. Thanks to him we got to see so many animals, even a leopard (very rare !) and some lions. He organized even a chimpanzee trekking for us. It was a fantastic experience ! Thanks again Aron !

Two-Day Akagera Game Drive
We had a wonderful time on our two-day Akagera trip we booked with Safari2GorilllaTours!! We were picked up promptly the first morning, at our accommodations in Kigali, by our guide Martin. Upon arrival at Akagera, we stopped for lunch at the Akagera Game Lodge, and checked in to our rooms. We then left for an afternoon boat tour of Lake Ihema, where we saw many hippos, crocodiles, birds, and elephants! We then went on a short game drive around the southern end of the park, where we saw more elephants, hippos, warthogs, many many zebras and other animals. We returned to the lodge for our buffet dinner (delicious grilled meats!), pre-ordered our sack lunches for the next day's drive, and settled in to our very comfortable air-conditioned rooms, with wonderful amenities and views of Lake Ihema.
The next morning, we had breakfast from the very large buffet offered, picked up our lunches, and were off by 6:30 a.m. We toured most of the day, seeing large groups of animals, including zebras, waterbucks, impalas,cape bufffalos, elephants (including a very large group coming to the water to drink!), giraffes, warthogs, iguanas, and many varieties of birds. We didn't expect to see the rhinos or lions, as they are very shy and that was okay, just knowing they were out there somewhere was thrilling!
We so enjoyed this tour, even the "African Massage" of the rough roads in the park. We were returned to Kigali in plenty of time for dinner out.
Highly recommend Safari2GorillaTours!! Thank you, Aaron and Martin!

The experience we had was fantastic, meeting the gorillas is unbelievable- once in a lifetime...
The service we've got from Safari 2 Gorilla Tours was perfect- from the beginning all the communication with Aron was very clear and comfortable. When we arrive Martin the driver was waiting for us, he was very nice, professional and he took really good care of us all the way to the safari.

Truly amazing experience!
Aron communicated to use via whatsapp which made it so much easier - he was very efficient with his responses and happy to answer the countless questions we had before we even booked the trip! After booking, he laid out a clear itinerary and followed up to ensure we were aware of the process etc and also put us in touch with our driver, Martin beforehand.
Martin was very prompt with picking us up from our hotel. He drove us from Kigali to Bwindi National Park, helping with the border crossing. He was great company and knowledgeable about Kigali, Rwanda, Uganda etc and happy to share his wisdom.
The tour itself is once in a lifetime experience - we trekked for about 2 hours before finding the gorillas. The guide & porters, again, were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
Thanks Safari 2 Gorillas Tours!

Gorilla trekking is an amazing experience which I recommend for anyone going to East Africa.
We had an unforgettable experience gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. We did a three day trek and we enjoyed every minute of it. Safari 2 Gorilla Tours was flawless and I really enjoyed working with them. Aaron made all the arrangements for us and he was a pleasure to work with. I would email him at all hours of the day and he responded promptly and pleasantly. He answered all of my questions and he went out of his way to help us make our gorilla trek a memorable experience. Martin was our guide and driver and he was a lot of fun to be with. His driving was perfect, he was flexible with our schedule and he too went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see. Thank you to Safari 2 Gorilla Tours for giving us an unforgettable experience!

Everything went very smooth from the beginning to the end.... Wonderful safari and hiking trip!
Already from the beginning I had a good feeling when I started communicating with Safari 2 Gorilla Tours. I send them an email and inquired about a Gorilla tracking permit in Uganda. Aron answered very quickly to my questions and we continued communicating by whatsup. The communication was fast, clear and transparent. He made me a proposal about a 6 day Gorilla, safari and hiking tour in Uganda with transfers from and to Kigali. I told him which places I wanted to visit and which activities I was interested in. (lake bunyonyi, gorillas, queen elizabeth national park, game drives, hiking up mount muhabura)
At the end I had a costumized tour proposal stating exactly which costs were included, which were not and in which guest houses I was going to stay. The price seemed also very accurate and fair.
The tour itself was totally matching my expectations. I was picked up at the agreed time and place in Kigali by a very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly driver, Godwin, with a good humour. He cared about all the paper works with the national parks, the border crossings and guesthouses. Basically we followed the planned itinerary but it was no problem to change or amend things spontaniously.
The 6 days were packed with stunning landscapes, lots of wildlife (we managed to see the sleeping lions on the fig trees and also a leopard), the once in a liftetime experience to observe Gorillas, an adventurous sweaty hike up Mount Muhabura, as well as many nice encounters with local people.
All in all I had a really great, inspiring time in Uganda and Ruanda thanks to Safari 2 Gorilla Tours. I can totally recommend Arond and his team.
